Dance Education Curriculum


Our curriculum encourages integration of creative/artistic inquiry, pedagogic inquiry and research inquiry. Fieldwork is integral to the learning in many of our courses. Through engaging with the field, students have the opportunity to analyze educational models, exercise researcher skills, develop professional networks, and to awaken to the “realistic idealism” that propels the future growth of arts education.
